roto visage - der golem [kpu087]


Published


This highly abstract release from Kikapu newcomer, roto visage, is mostly minimal, yet in some instances dense, containing layer upon layer of bleak, disturbing and desolate soundscapes. His debut album, "der golem," can be closely aligned with dark ambient yet moves away from the genre with its organic, meditative explorations. The inherent isolation within the tracks is at times uncomfortable, a forced introspection, but quickly sinks into a dark solitude, as though anything beyond melancholy would be unnatural. This schizophrenic release will surely leave you wanting more, and thanks to roto visage's prolific nature, you can expect to hear from him again soon.

This album is not for the casual feather-lite pop/rock fan. It is not for tapping your foot to, dancing to (so far as I can tell), or any such past times. All you can do is sit back and let the cold, sometimes classical-sounding soundscapes wash over you and engulf you. It is a difficult first list as it switches between the more melodic "Small Steps" and "Tare" to the eerily unnerving ambiences of "Emerge" and "The Call". It is a must have for any Lustmord or Robert Rich fan.
